Bottle @ ZZT 2016-1, small sample. Thanks all for sharing! Cloudy reddish color, medium frothy head. Aroma of lots of cherry, marzipan. Bit sweet in taste, cookie, soft sourness. Nice. Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2016
Bottle: Poured a cloudy reddish color ale with a medium off-white foamy head with limited retention and some lacing. Aroma of fresh cherry with vinous and oak notes is pretty interesting. Taste is a mix of cherry and vinous notes with some oak and some light residual sugar notes. Body is quite full with medium carbonation. Very well balanced overall with good level of complexity while retaining some good drinkability. There is more cherry in this then a regular Flander style beer which make it even more enjoyable.

Thank you Joes! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ ZZT 2016-1. Red amber, little head. Nose is sweet cherry – massive with low complimentary sourness. Taste is massive rich, juicy sweet cherry with low complimentary sourness,…. This tastes like they used delicious sweet cherries & not sour ones as promised by the label (kriek = sour cherry), doesn’t matter, this is delicious, fruit is massive, juicy, sourness is amazingly restrained & complimentary especially for an USA brewer, faint oak. Rich bodied. Very nice fruit sour. Great stuff. Martinus (4701) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2016
